2001 Volkswagen Jetta GLX VR6 4dr Sedan (2.8L 6cyl 5M)


Great, sporty, practical car. I have a black/black leather 5spd and I must say it looks sharp. The woodgrain interior moldings and blue tachs make you feel your in a much more expensive auto. This car is quick but I find that the front wheel drive offers too much torque steer. There are times when I have to fight to keep the car in straight line. I've driven it 27k in less than a year w/o a single problem. I bought this because I didn't have the money for a BMW at the time. Even thought it is a great riding car I wish I would have waited because the BMW offers so much more performance-wise over the VW.

Best Features

Engine is very smooth w/a smooth, even delivery of power. This car also offers every option you could ask for at a decent price. The leather seats are of high quality & I love the seat heaters in the winter!

Worst Features

Warranty is a total joke. Who offers a 24k warranty anyway? Guess they're spending too much on their marketing.
